260 Dwarven Forge 6 inch by 6 inch tiles! 2 Years, 8 Months ago  


Here are a few pictures of my city. It is built on approximately 260 Dwarven Forge 6 inch by 6 inch square tiles, along with various 4 inch by 4 inch water/river/lake tiles. Most of the buildings are from Miniature Building Authority. The arena and the bell tower are from Terranscapes, and the dark elf tower and the college of Mages are from Monolith Icon.

You can access many more pictures via photobucket using the following link.

I took a rather, long and arguably boring 26 minute video of the city. The music is rather cheesy, but the song is the only one youtube offered me that is 26 minutes long. Below is the link:





One caveat, you should be aware that I took both the photos and the video mainly for myself to document my creation, given that I intend to take down the city and build something new in the coming months. As such, the video is a bit too long because it was meant to exhaustively document everything, and, for similar reasons, I took too many photos.

Hope you guys like it.

Does this qualify for the Guiness book of world records? I think we would have to disqualify Dwarven Forge from the competition, but this probably even beats their largest display ever.

Totally and completely stunning - no save possible!

(I find myself wondering whimsically at the total *worth* of the city....)

I'm a fan of terranscape and always look at his new videos on youtube. The other day he was talking about a special cient of his that always has special orders for him. Seeing the bell tower and the arena, i think the client is you! :)

Very impressive collection. Bravo

Holy miniature terrain overload, Batman!

That is just awesome Sorn. No wonder you took so many pictures -- I'd document every inch of that city!

My biggest question: did you have a chance to play on it?!

Absolutely awesome, but I have to ask - do you ever play anything on your setups? Or do you just enjoy building them to look at? I've found that I'm fairly limited in what I build by what my players can actually reach...

Sorn,

First of all I apologize for posting and not giving you credit. I did not know that photo was your setup. I recently saw a setup, not nearly as big as yours, that looked very similar at Rice. I sent one of the guys an email asking for a photo and he sent me that photo. He must have ripped it from a blog or website.

Ok now onto the positive part of my post. I am going to grant you the all time YOU ROCK THE FREE WORLD!!! This is the all time best setup I have seen.

I hope you do not mind but I am going to begin to put mine together and use your setup as inspiration. I do not have the scale that you have today. I plan on adding pieces over the next year or so to build my scale. Thank you so much for sharing.
